NBA Legend Kobe Bryant And Teen Daughter Perish In Chopper Crash...

NBA legend Kobe Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter and seven others were killed in a helicopter crash on a remote, steep hillside in Southern California on Sunday.....









His sudden death at age 41 touching off an outpouring of grief for a star whose celebrity transcended basketball.

The chopper went down in Calabasas, about 30 miles (48 kilometers) northwest of downtown Los Angeles. Authorities said that nine people died, with no survivors, after earlier putting the death toll at five. Bryant, an all-time basketball great who spent his entire 20-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers, was among the victims, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press.


A different person familiar with the case confirmed that Bryant’s 13-year-old daughter Gianna was also killed.

Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva would not confirm the identities of the victims Sunday afternoon pending official word from the coroner.

Bryant, retired in 2016 as the 3-leading scorer in NBA history, finishing two decades with the Lakers as a prolific scorer with a sublime all-around game and a relentless competitive ethic. He held that spot in the league scoring ranks until Saturday night, when the Lakers’ LeBron James passed him for third place during a game in Philadelphia, Bryant’s hometown.

  2. Dear lord please if you truly exist! Please make this news untrue.

    Rewind this day and make the helicopter develop fault so they won’t make it.

    This is so hard to believe! Wet my bed in tears because I know how it feels to lose someone in this horrific way!
    Two families lost lives!
    Is this your way of showing us your great strength lord??

    We have horrible politicians who use jet all the time, why not take their lives and liberate Nigerians from their suffering?
    Why the innocent who try their best to help the poor and give back to society.
    Why are the bad ones still roaming the earth?
    Why does the devil protect its own and you don’t?
    I’m just so hurt!

    3. Kerry, I cried myself to sleep. Kobe was the reason I watched basketball. Such tragic news!
      When the breaking news was aired, my screams got everyone running into the family room.

      But it wasn't God that made that horrible crash happen. The devil roams around seeking whom to devour - he hates anything good.



      "My brain. . it cannot process failure. It will not process failure. Because if I sit there and have to face myself and tell myself, ‘You’re a failure’ . . . I think that’s almost worse than death." - Kobe Bryant, basketball legend, RIP

  4. This one shocked me yesterday...How can someone work so so hard and died by the fruits of their labour.. He has all the money to maintain that helicopter what then happened up there.
    Imagine the fear, scream and acceptance knowing their end has come as it was crashing.. Ahhh.

    This is so so sad ...

The thought that he was rhere with his daughter and she was probably screaming I fear and holding him tight and there was nothing he could do to save her that I just can’t get over

    1. When I saw the news on the gram yesterday I immediately logged out hoping it will be a false news, after some minutes I went to check the gram and I started seeing all the post of him, immediately I thought of the little girl that would never know her dad. This one touched me so much, I can't even imagine what is wife and daughters would be going through. I pray God comfort all the families that lost their loved ones and cover them with his love.

  6. Hmmmmn, I feel so bad about this. I just wonder how the wife and family will feel. Chai, I remember Shac and Kobe that year. May God grant them rest and give the family Grace to move on.

  7. China might make today a holiday to mourn Kobe, hes like a small god to them, the crowd he pulls in China/Japan, even Putin and Trump put together wouldnt match.
    I'm still in denial over his demise, some people arent just meant to die, they should just evolve into one giant beautiful flower in the suburbs.
    RIP Gianna and Lakers Legend, no one saw this coming, not even the fake prophets.

    1. I had to run to YouTube to watch it before it is taken down.
      The moment I heard his death, I shook my head cos I know exactly what it was.
      They belong to all sorts of societies. It's just unfortunate his daughter and another family was involved.
      Movies like supernatural etc aren't just movies. They tell you exactly how this superstars get to the apex of their career, the time frame given to live and the price they have to pay.
      I'm sure he knew it was coming.
      Rest in power Kobe.

    3. DavinaRose, ypou are sure?? Please keep shut!!!!!!!!

      He knew it coming and he let his daughter be there? some of you have brains clogged with Mud!!! I am not even going to argue about him belonging to a society but saying YOU ARE SURE HE KNEW as if he told you!!!

    4. Cookie he may not know it will involve his daughter. To think his daughter was the one taking after his footsteps since he had no male child... these things are more than coincidence! Have you wondered why a celeb dies during awards season? Especially that Grammy award, these things are more than coincidence.

      Yesterday one sky reporter that was reporting the news mistakenly mentioned illuminati...the freemasons are real!

    5. Stupid cookie. How dare you tell me to shut up. I am free to say whatever. Just as I cant tell you what to type. Be careful and watch your disgusting mouth.
      Back to your stupid comment. He saw it coming doesn't mean he knew when. Even Michael during his last days from his documentaries and statements from his kids knew it was coming. The how and when is what they dont know. Take out time to listen to some of Kobe's recent interviews and put on your thinking cap while at it.
      This is a Tragic loss.

  15. The one I find most shocking is the ‘ I never chop’ Nigerians flooding social media with condolence messages and carrying his picture ‘on their heads’. Ki lo kan yin ! Let America mourn its dead. When your own yeyebrities die they don’t even acknowledge that you are human beings talk less of giving condolence messages. Book haram is decimating your people daily and you guys say absolutely nothing on your social media pages about this. Nigerians are so shameless and their self worth/esteem is right there in the gutters. It is only ‘abroad’ issues they put their crooked teeth/mouth inside. Tueh ๐Ÿคฎ

    7. People died and this is all you have to say? You are a terrible being.

      He is being mourned as a human everyone "knew ". It's the human in us that make us mourn him not because he is an American.

    8. We have 'inferiority complex' for mourning a human being that died? For being sympathetic as a fellow human being should? My dear, Anon 8;57,you are likely a sociopath. May God help you.

    9. Why are you so angry tho. Remember life is short. Get rid of this anger and free your mind. It's not worth be angry at Nigerians, Nigerians are already going through a lot

    13. You're a HORRIBLE person. A beast in human form. How dare you tell people how to grieve? That havemost Nigeriansn't met him one on one doesn't mean they haven't watched him play? Do you know how many Nigerians/Africans he has inspired? You are a beast and God will have mercy on you.

    15. The way some of you reason though, so shallow.

      Sometimes, It is just not about the death, It is the circumstances surrounding the death, the suddenness, the personality of the person and the impact the person has made, moreso, daughter and father perished and all other families in the twinkle of an eye.

      It is tragic, whether Nigerian or American or British, first we are humans,let people mourn him.

      It is also a reminder to everyone of us mourning how tomorrow is not guaranteed.

    16. All of you ori yin ti daru ! I will wait to see how you will mourn your own when the time comes. Na abroad issue go kill all of you. See the words you are using, grieving , mourning, ki lo kan yin ?? Somebody that you have absolutely no business with, some people are even saying on Instagram that they could not sleep well. Meanwhile there are people in your different families that need this care o, but no, you will ignore them till they die. Awon werey !! Enter the grave with the dead so that I will know you are really hurting from this incident. Misguided fools.

  17. Life is so fragile. This is the worst death news of the new decade.

    Dotnoso said it in 2012 that he will die through helicopter and eight years later, it came to pass. He saw the future.

    His daughter was a shinning star and the other family that perished with him.

    May God have mercy on their souls and grant them eternal rest.

  28. There are some people who are saying we do not celebrate people in their lifetime why celebrate them in their death, to those people, I say to you, you are yet to understand life and I truly hope you understand life one day. Rest on Kobe, I never knew you, besides your name,face and personal stories that made its way to the news, however, people say how much of a great player you were, the best after Michael Jordan (didnt know him either but I will be damned if he isnt celebrated too if something like this happend to him God forbid). this hit really hard and my feelings are valid.
